Happy New Year 2017!

I have been busy stitching and adding some items to the web site.  The first item is the newest block of the month  - Snowy Days. It is a wool applique on cotton - a 6 month project  -  just $11.99 a month with no extra shipping charges.  I invite you to join us as it is very doable and easy to keep up with..  please call me if you have any questions and for cc information.  The size of this is approximately 24 x 37 inches.

Another item that I have been working on is this small 27x27 table topper or wall hanging - the school house. I have always wanted to do this block but for whatever reason never have -  so here it is - this is kitted up and is $29.99 the only thing that you will have to add is the backing.

pincushions are always fun and so although the pattern does have several more in it -  I liked these two.

Also  a little love is in the air.. so of course another couple of kits - this first one is made out of that wonderful toweling fabric and the words are in wool with a little embellishment and embroidery.  

A counted cross stitch project that seems to want to stand on its head!! it is postcard size - has the linen and thread and of course the chart.   I have all the kits ready to go and in our online store.  Wherever you are, I hope that you are staying warm and enjoying some stitching time.

The snow is coming to Michigan!

We are expecting several days of snowfall this week... so everyone is out shopping it seems-  just in case it keeps us inside for a few days..... yes I was one of the ones out and about doing some Christmas shopping... but now back at home and updating various things on the blog and the website.. I am beginning to get the hang of this!!

So I have loaded some items into the online store.. some cute projects for Christmas that can still be made in time if you let me know soon!  some of those fun little tree ornaments that hold all kinds of goodies or gift cards. Some of those things that we cannot live without like glue pens and walnut shells and chenille needles. Plus some great new books.  Take a look - I am planning on using Jo's Best Friends next year with her new fabrics and to kit up many of her projects.  Also the book A Change of Seasons by Bonnie Sullivan  has  several projects that I plan to introduce to you.  Stay tuned!
